A Star-Spangled Night of Tuesday Trivia!

Tuesday’s game of Pour House Trivia welcomed 88 teams across 14 venues:


Tuesday’s first round was a breeze for the field, as our teams rolled through questions on British geography, the “Grumpy Old Men” film series, and this 100-year old brand logo:

Dutch Boy

Across the board, 14 teams began their night with a perfect opening round.


Tuesday’s audio question featured three songs that shared the title of “Jump”.  Teams easily recognized the songs recorded by Van Halen and Kris Kross, but Simple Plan was certainly more difficult to pin down, as only nine teams earned bonus points on this opening question.  Later, we discussed the King of Spain, NBA Geography, and this fictional restaurant from “Seinfeld”:


Three teams notched 36 points in the second round: Bluth Frozen Banana Hammocks (Greene Growlers), How Did I Get Here? (Greene Growlers), and Downey Ocean Hon (Senor Tequila’s).


Album covers and “Saturday Night Live” characters were featured on Tuesday’s halftime page, which saw seven teams record perfect scores, while the overall average came in at 14.7 points.  Here are Tuesday’s top scores at the halftime break:


Tuesday’s second half began with a look at two current films that employ the use of American Sign Language: “Rampage” and “A Quiet Place”.  We continued with questions concerning the Google Pixel smartphone and a certain David Bowie song about an astronaut.  Many teams knew which song we were talking about, but only one-third of the field knew that the actual title of the tune about Major Tom is “Space Oddity”.  We closed the third stanza with a look at this college football career:

Andrew Luck Stanford

Current Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting in two straight seasons, but the final bonus question of the round thwarted many perfect scores, as only seven teams knew that running back Toby Gerhart (Luck’s teammate at Stanford) finished second in the Heisman voting one year prior.  With that, the third round did not yield any perfect scores.


Tuesday’s final round opened with a look at this current reality series:

The Four

Apparently, very few of our teams watched this show when it aired during the winter, as only five teams knew that it was hosted by Fergie.  Other final round topics included the Hoover Dam, “Gulliver’s Travels”, and a Three Clues question about the name Zelda.  Just as in the third round, we did not see any perfect final round scores.  Here are Tuesday’s top scores after four rounds of play:

FINAL QUESTION (39.2% success rate):

–> The Star-Spangled Banner that flew over Fort McHenry during the War of 1812 had which same number of both stars and stripes?

About two-fifths of the field gave us the correct answer of 15.  Congratulations to the six teams who earned the Perfect 21 tonight with correct responses on all wagering questions.  These were your highest overall scores from Tuesday night:
